Terrible sleeper!
 
My LO turned 8 months old yesterday and he still isn't sleeping any better at night. He's never STTN or even come close to doing so. He was getting up every 2 hours which I got used to but lately it's been every 30 min to an hour. I think I've been running on fumes for a while now. Any suggestions? By 3 or 4 in the morning, I usually just put him in the bed with me. I didn't want to but I had to get some sleep. I try to just rock him back to sleep but usually end up nursing. Maybe he has just gotten in the habit of waking up??? I'm not sure. Or maybe I should try to feed him more solids during the day?? He's just not that much into solids. Anyone have any advice?? Please and thank you!!

sounds pretty normal for that age. My DD did not STTN until closer to 2 years old. You can check out the No Cry Sleep Solution. Some of the tips in there took our night time wakings to 2-4 times a night, vs 6-10 times a night prior to that.

My LO didn't sttn until she was 1, and I didn't do anything different, it was like a switch got turned on.I tried everything, but nothing seem to work for me.

Things I tried: putting one of my shirts in there so they could smell my sent, feeding different kinds of food, hate to say itbut giving her formula, having Dhabi Luther to bed, getting a lovey with a heart beat noise, putting a fan or any kick of noise maker.
